It seems they would have to be perfectly aligned to get a good, flat, edge to join to the bottom room for error....Am I retarted and missing something or just over analyzing a simple procedure
This will depend entirely on how you machine your pieces, if you use a jointer - this can be a real problem hence my aversion to these machines for tanks. I use a router table with a fence so you push the pieces between the fence and the router ensuring identical width (+/-.002" or so)
